Greedy

Greedy is a comedy involving the petty plotting and groveling that takes place in a family when an uncle's inheritance is at stake. Uncle Bob is a cantankerous old millionaire with a family of greedy fools. He has just taken in a new house guest, Molly, a beautiful, intelligent, young woman whom Uncle Bob met when she delivered a pizza to him a few weeks prior. This naturally sets the whole family into an uproar, as they fear that Uncle Bob's millions will go to her. All the family gets together and conjures up a scheme to re-unite Uncle Bob with his favorite nephew, Danny, whom Uncle Bob has not seen for over twenty years. By doing this, they believe they can convince Uncle Bob to get rid of his new companion, Molly, and keep the inheritance in the family. As the plan is set into motion, we discover that Uncle Bob is quite a sly old fox and that everyone is truly in for a surprise.
